Oh Joon, a former South Korean ambassador to the United Nations gave a special lecture in the Humanities Building at Seoul Campus to deliver a message of global peace on May 15.
The lecture was hosted by the Division of International Studies as part of the homecoming event. The theme of the talk was Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a globalized world. In this lecture, he recognized inequality as the driving force explaining SDGs goal number 10. In addition, Oh said that greed triggered the cause of inequality in relation to the fall and background of communism.
Kim Soo-hyeon, a student council member of the Division of International Studies, said, “It was impressive that Oh Joon emphasized the degree of inequality as a problem, not in itself, but in its deepening,” and she added, “When he was in the waiting room with me, he also talked about income inequality in our daily life.”
